Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea squad is a kind of attractive side for youngsters in England. The team has got extra pace after the arrival of the German head coach. The rising talents of Stamford Bridge would love to get into Tuchel’s men and there is a particular case for them in Summer.
French youth international Malang Sarr is the future prospects of the Blues in the defensive department. The summer of 2020 took the defender to West London from his childhood club OGC Nice.
Sarr was unable to get access to the senior side of the Blues and offered a loan deal to the Portuguese side, FC Porto. But, life in Porto wasn’t that comfortable for him. According to the latest reports, the player won’t get a permanent deal in Portugal.
Also, as per the contract he is supposed to return to Chelsea this summer. He got a long contract in Chelsea till 2025. The Frenchmen would love to join Tuchel’s side because of the new reputation they possess.
Thoughts for Chelsea:
The season performance of Sarr is not that good to claim an extension in Porto. He appeared in 8 games in the domestic competitions and failed to start a fixture in the loan spell.
The return to Chelsea is not that easy for Sarr. Thomas Tuchel’s campaign has got plenty of talents for the upcoming season clash. The young options are fighting for the starting eleven spot and that actually helps the mindset of the side.
Tuchel’s defensive lineup got plenty of experienced options. The three men defense of Tuchel can accommodate more wingbacks in front of the backline. Hence, Sarr has got some chance. He can be used as a wingback in the defense and can find a spot under Tuchel.
They are in the last eight of the UEFA Champions League. FC Porto are the opponents for Tuchel in the quarter-finals. Also, FA Cup actions are under the watch of Chelsea. They are up against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in the semi-finals.
Porto paid a loan fee of €2 million along with the wage coverage. Chelsea’s backline is safe with the presence of Antonio Rudiger, Christensen, Kurt Zouma, and Thiago Silva. Sarr can replace the seniors of Chelsea in the course of time.
The Summer transfer window has got plenty of speculations from West London. Chelsea are expecting a title next season and they are pushing for one this season. Tuchel’s inning streak has exerted extra pressure for the Blues in multiple competitions.
They can fight for the domestic title next season. But, Tuchel needs to perform a balancing act this summer. He should address the case of young talents of Stamford Bridge and ensure the playing minutes for them.
Although, the rumors are speculating a couple of incomings in the summer. That includes additions in the forward line and midfield. The case of Malang Sarr is one of the important concerns for Tuchel in his balancing act.
